The Local Authority and Governors of Bishop Martin offer places for admission to Reception for children who have celebrated their fourth birthday by August 31st. We are currently a one form entry with 30 places to allocate. 

The application process opened on 12th September 2020 and will close on 15th January 2021. Please make sure you have registered your 3 choices of schools online with the Local Authority prior to the closing date see link below:-

You also need to complete our School Admissions Application Form 2021-2022 and return to school addressed to the Clerk of Governors. If you are applying via the Church Route you must send that part of the application to your Minister/ Leader for them to complete and return to school.

For any Parents that attend St Peter's Church and require their Application form completing by Reverend Kip Crooks please read this information:-

Kip will be signing primary school admissions forms during November.
If you require him to sign your form(s) please email him at: for more information and to arrange an appointment.
In order to book an appointment you will need to include in your initial email your name and contact details, your child’s name, and which primary school forms you require Kip to sign. This is to ensure the process is as efficient as possible. 

We will not be holding an Open day due to Covid-19 restrictions.

What are the admission arrangements for children with disabilities?

Children are admitted to Bishop Martin CE Primary school according to our admissions policy. The admission of pupils with disabilities is the same as those applied to pupils without disabilities. The school complies fully with the Equality Act 2010 and the School Admissions Code 2012 in relation to the arrangements for the admission of disabled pupils. Where the school is oversubscribed all children are admitted in accordance with the published oversubscription criteria. Where a child is disabled the school will make reasonable adjustments and provide auxiliary aids or services to ensure that no disabled child is placed at a substantial disadvantage compared to other pupils.

Parents of children with disabilities are advised to speak to us prior to admission to discuss any reasonable adjustments required so we can plan accordingly.

Where places are available for other year groups and applicants meet the criteria laid down in the school's Admission Policy, places will be offered upon approval by the Governing Body.
